Clan MacInnes Roll of Honour
Many MacInneses have fallen in the wars. Some were buried in the areas where they fell. John MacInnes of Scotland has searched the burial and memorial web sites and has come up with a list of names that match our Clan MacInnes Sept lists. There are names for U.S. and abroad. These records are provided here courtesy of John. The listings are in the original Excel and Word formats, and in html or PDF for on-line viewing.

Civil War - Union and Confederate
From John MacInnes:
There is a good site on those that served in the US Civil War and gives rosters for all those that served and whether they survived or not. I've downloaded the appropriate information from these pages relating to MacInneses and those who may, or may not, be septs and put it into excel format for processing the information. There are some other variations on the spelling that I've also added and which could be debadiv as coming from Clan MacInnes and some derivations which point to Irish origins. The Commonwealth one is complete and lists those from Scotland, rest of the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. The US sites are fairly disparate depending on who runs the cemeteries/war memorials and the fact that the US did not have a policy like the Commonwealth of burying war dead in the vicinity of where they fell. The US Civil War information is still incomplete as their adding information all the time from rosters during the war and the confederate information has been subject to destruction. It's interesting information not just for family genealogy but clan history as it shows the how the members of the clan have spread throughout the world and where different variations of the spelling arise. For example literal derivations of Mac Aonghais such as McAnsh / McAnininch etc are more common in the states than elsewhere suggesting earlier movement when the standardization of English was still in flux; spelling such as MacInnis/McKinnis as opposed to MacInnes/McInnes (i.e. an "-is" ending as opposed to a "-es" ending) is more prevalent in North America (almost exclusively); and whilst McInnes is the most common spelling worldwide MacInnes is the most prevalent in the historical areas of the clan - Argyll, Skye etc. John MacInnes Muir of Ord Scotland
